Deep Roots Garden’ has been inspired by a flourishing garden, especially after rain, the tree of life motif, and the idea of fences surrounding the home which symbolize boundaries of relationships and marriage. The Ketubah design as a whole is also shaped into a mezuzah, a protection of the home. The home is a foundation for marriage.

Find the Right Text
A Ketubah is a marriage document that Jewish law requires for a couple to have on their wedding day. Without the text portion of the ketubah it is simply nothing more than a piece of art. There are many different text options for your ketubah depending on the type of ceremony you will be having. By clicking on the word “Text” in the navigation at the very top of each page you can find different tools to help you choose the best text for you.
Need extra help? We are always here to help you select an appropriate text to pair with a spectacular piece of art to create the perfect Ketubah.
We are incredibly proud to offer our own exclusive line of Ketubah designs, produced in house and available on paper, canvas and stretched canvas. Paper ketubahs are printed on a cold press acid free art paper with a natural white surface. The paper ketubah has some texture to it and need to be framed in order to be hung up. Ketubahs ordered on paper can be ordered with or without names pre-printed.
The ketubah printed on canvas has a glossy look and has more texture and shine than the paper. The canvas can be framed behind glass or you can take it to a framer after the wedding to be stretched.
We offer the canvas stretching feature in house as well, and when ordered this way, the Ketubah is stretched by hand on a specially built frame in a style known as gallery wrap. A gallery wrapped" canvas Ketubah comes ready to hang complete with a wire at the back. Canvas and stretched canvas ketubahs are available only if you order names pre filled.
Text and Name Printing
We offer different options regarding how you would like your text to be set up. While the majority of couples order their ketubah with printed text and names for a seamless look to the text, many others would like to write in their names, date and location information by hand with a pen. For those that want to write their own text we also offer a custom text option in addition to the option of having their custom text translated into Hebrew as well.
Standard text printed, names to be handwritten
When selecting this option you will receive your ketubah with text that has blank spaces for hand written information. You will need to write in the names, date and location within the printed text prior to the wedding.
Standard text and names printed
When selecting this option you will receive your ketubah with all of your personalization information filled in- no blanks spaces will appear in the text. The ketubah will still have lines for the witnesses to sign at the wedding. After placing your order you will receive a form to fill in with all the necessary information so that we can create a proof for your review and approval before the ketubah is created.
Compose your own text for us to print
If you prefer to compose your own text for your ketubah you can choose the custom text option. The names of the couple, wedding date and location will all be filled in for you when selecting this option. Once you place your order, you can email us your text in a word document so that we can create a proof for your review and approval before your ketubah is created.
Compose your own text for us to translate and print
If you are providing a custom text that you wrote and want it translated into Hebrew we offer a translation service. After placing your order you can email us your custom English text, and we send it to a third party translator. Your ketubah text would then be both Hebrew and English. We will create a proof for your review and approval before your ketubah is created.
Papercutting has been a traditional Jewish art form for Ketubah decoration since the Middle Ages. Thanks to advances in artisanal laser cutting in the late 20th century, these exquisite pieces of fine art are now within everyone's budget. Papercut Ketubahs are lovingly produced, one at a time, to archival standards.
About the Artist
Melody started out as a fine artist experimenting with a variety of different mediums until finding her voice through papercut art. She takes particular interest in spirituality, self-expression, identity formation, and awareness campaigns. Her art evolved as she learned more about Torah and the mystical aspects of the Hebrew alphabet. She had a vision to revive Judaic art by combining traditional motifs with a more personalized, contemporary touch, botanicals, pattern making, and other meaningful symbols. On top of that, she infuses her artworks with inspiration derived from a love for childhood fairytales that she has kept alive all these years through the artmaking practice. During her spare, Melody enjoys photography, sketching, writing poetry, and experimenting with different mediums.
